Welcome To Fairview Farm
Welcome to Fairview Farm, central Virginia's largest ADA compliant rustic chic heated and air conditioned barn estate venue. Fairview was voted "Best New Wedding Venue" and "Best New Barn Venue" by Richmond Magazine readers and Weddingwire.com's editors selected Fairview Farm as one of the top twenty barn venues in the nation. Our clients love our relaxing farm estate weekend and Sunday destination wedding option and event venue because we include SO much with our Full Service Package. You may also inquire about a weekday option.
Fairview Farm is decorated professionally by season, while we do encourage personal touches; we save couples so much in unncessary rentals because we completely furnish the barn with antique farm tables, chairs, ceremony seating and much more. Visit our Pinterest page for just some of our complimentary items under Free Props and venue details. Our venue occupancy is 245 for both the barn and rustic chic pavilion and both have beautiful chandeliers and bistro lighting.
Farview Farm can accommodate up to two nights for thirty five guests on site for the bridal party and family for a wedding weekend at our central Virginia estate with the addition of our optional new Blanton cottage overlooking the large pond where family can fish the morning of the wedding or golf at a nearby golf course. We are converting a vintage barn on property into a 2000 sqaure foot retro chic loft apartment for 2017 as an option. We believe that families who stay together for an event like this will have a memory for a lifetime rather than a fleeting moment. Sixteen weekend guests are included with our weekend package with the farm property.
Couples love that we focus on the details and include so much with your package for a stress free event! May 13/14, 2017 weekend just became available and we have a few late fall destination weekends, Sundays and some weekday dates remain for 2017 and we are now reserving 2018. PLEASE REVIEW OUR CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY.
Fairview Farm is often told a whole weekend at the farm is a superior value and experience than most venues who offer a Saturday day of event. Read our reviews on Weddingwire.com where we have been chosen for Couple's Choice 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Weddings, receptions and other events are reserved for couples and families who want a once in a life time country farm estate experience.
Fairview Farm's 40 X 60 rustic chic pavilion adds to the ambiance and is adjacent to the barn and used for rehearsal, cocktail hour and ceremonies and replaces the need for a costly tent. It is included, as well as catering with two caterer choices, several entertainment and day of event planner choices.
Family owned for 100 years; Fairview Farm was transformed into a wedding and event venue in spring 2014 as the owners are passionate about keeping their farm available for couples and families from all over the nation for generations to come.
Accommodations are nearby as there is a wonderful VA state park nearby called Bear Creek Lake on a thirty acre lake with a private six bedroom lodge and up to thirteen cottages for $150 per night on average, complimenting the rustic chic venue as an option. The farm has also partnered with hotels in the nearby Richmond area as well as transportation options. We are one hour from RIC and truly in the heart of beautiful central Virginia.
The rustic chic farm estate venue includes so much detail and will provide you with a stress free wedding experience. Whether your affection is burlap or lace, we have you covered. Both floors of the heated, air conditioned and insulated barn have tastefully appointed decor, saving thousands of dollars in unncessary rentals. Fairview Farm's barn also includes decorated antique farm tables and chairs for up to 150 guests in the barn, separate ADA restrooms, prep kitchen, 70" TV for presentations and Bose sound system. It is comforting to know that there are back up generators for the entire facility. There is a beautiful second story loft with a porch for additional seating and side porch for over forty guests. Stamped concrete porches, ceiling fans, walkways, decks, arbors, pergolas including a new large 500 square foot octagon gazebo with a three foot crystal chandelier and bisro lighting for 2016, fire pits, and ample parking area.
Named for its magnificent views of the rolling farmlands of Virginia, Fairview Farm provides just the right mixture of chic country southern charm with many modern comforts. Fairview has gorgeous sunsets with views of the distant Lynchburg mountain range and adjacent to Blenheim, a national historic landmark family farm. There is a picturesque large pond with fountain, gazebo and large dock, as well as vintage barns and one of the largest and oldest poplar trees in Virginia with an old fashioned swing for special photos. Fairview Farm's one hundred and fifteen acre estate has only had three owners since 1733, as part of a charter grant of King George, to Wiliam Mayo, the surveyor of the time. It operated as a dairy farm for over sixty years and is still farmed today for crops for Blenheim's adjacent cattle farm.
What else is included in our packages? A large renovated ca. 1915 farmhouse property is exclusive to the wedding party for the weekend which accommodates up to sixteen guests for the weekend. Another fantastic feature is the large game room building which is perfect for the day of the rehearsal and is enjoyed for the weekend and for our groomsmen on the wedding day and can be enjoyed until midnight each night. The building is being enlarged to provide much more for 2017.
The updated bridal suite wing of the renovated 3600 square foot farmhouse includes a separate dressng room with mirrors and more as well as a large master bath with Jacuzzi. We treat our couples very special at Fairview Farm and create a fun relaxing memorable country experience from the moment they arrive until they depart. Our farm is committed to not "rushing" your special weekend which is why we limit our availability for events to maximize your relaxing experience. Fairview Farm feels like a bed and breakfast with linens, toiletries etc. included, just so much better as it is your personal homeplace for the weekend.
Fairview Farm provides white padded resin ceremony seating for multiple ceremony sites with many magnificent views. There are many props included such as a 1951 F-1 completely restored red Ford pickup to an old red tractor. Our guests say we have considered every detail and we hope you will agree. Follow us on Pinterest and Instagram. Couples from all over the nation love our conveniently located central Virginia location, less than one hour from RIC airport and near interstate.
